Keith Seinfeld | Health & Science Reporter/Assistant News Director
I’ve been KPLU’s Health & Science reporter since 2001. I cover just about any area of scientific research or health care, from the laboratories to the patients, from public clinics to the rivalries between hospitals. There have been many memorable stories over the years, but one of the most satisfying was my series on the use of electricity to modify the brain (which won the 2008 Science Journalism Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)). Prior to Health & Science, I covered the Environment beat for KPLU for five years. Before that, I was a staff reporter at The Seattle Times and The News Tribune in Tacoma and a freelance writer-producer. I grew up in Tacoma, graduated from Stanford University, and in 2007-08 attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology on a Knight Science Journalism Fellowship.
You can find many of my stories and contact info at the KPLU news page. However, we renovated our website late in 2010. Some of the older stories can be found here at our older web archives; otherwise, they might be easier to find using the magic of Google (or Bing if you like).
